MSA 200 C-BQ
MSA 200 C-BQ is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More saw than I expected considering it is battery powered. This is a great little saw that is a real performer. Don't expect it to be equivalent to a gas engine powered saw but it has its own advantages. Working off a ladder or platform lift is easier. NO noise to annoy nearby neighbors. No gasoline smell in the back of my Jeep when I take it with me 4 wheeling. Small chain size ideal for carving logs for decorative architectural trim. Long lasting battery life is good for back woods trail maintenance where noise is an annoyance to others. Overall a good purchase and I just bought bar oil that is environmentally friendly for use around streams and wet lands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save yourself the time I admit that I tried to save some money before buying this saw. I read a whole host of comparison reviews and it suggested that a "big box store" was fairly close to the Stihl in performance. After two weeks of the "other" I was not thrilled with the performance as compared to my friend's description of the Stihl. The biggest concern is that the "other" needs for the battery to cool down after it is depleted (about 45 minutes) prior to charging. Whereas the Stihl is 20-25 minutes. No waiting. After borrowing a Stihl from my local dealer for a day I was truly impressed. Dropped a 45 yo swamp cedar, pruned it , chopped it up for firewood and still had half a battery left. As a homeowner that is more than enough for me. Bought the saw the next day and can't recommend the saw or Mayer Power Equipment enough. These guys are top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it all the time, as a professional landscaper- I love it Silent cutting- it makes a contentious branch cut a non issue, the crazy neighbor doesn't freak out, the cops or county officials aren't called in- it makes everything seem small and basic. It is a great chainsaw- no doubt- but the best is working without the smell and noise that attracts biased interference from the public . Buying another soon, have 3 already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOMEOWNERS NEED THIS SAW This saw works just as good as the Stihl gas saw, I really could not believe it when I actually tried it. Runs about 40 minutes on one battery charge and the battery recharges in about 20 minutes with the fast charger. I guess in about 10 years all chain saws will be battery operated. In the long run, it will actually save you money as you do not have the buy gas or oil for this saw.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed review The quality and reliability of this saw is0 excellent, well it is a Stihl so that goes without question. :-)I have a few Stihl saws because I cut no less than half the day. So my only problem is with the battery life. And I would love if someone could please answer this question: as the battery is gettin low does the saw start to lack power??? Or does it run-full-fun till the charge is depleted.Thanks, Erik

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More power than I expected. Pricey This chainsaw is ideal for light/medium duty homeowner chores. I have a 3 acre lot with oak trees and scrub brush in the Texas hill country and this tool is excellent for the routine maintenance chores on the lot.I've been very pleased with the power provided by the battery. This tool is lightweight, reliable, and very suitable for its intended use.The retail price is high, but I expect to use the chainsaw for many years and I was willing to pay for the Stihl durability.
